Arrow finale spoiler: Paul Blackthorne teases a "beautiful exit" for one of the show vets after season 6
As the final episode draws close, however, it is likely that the events will culminate in an epic showdown with Oliver and Ricardo confronting each other, once and for all
Arrow fans better prepare themselves for an emotional farewell as the CW show is headed towards its season finale this Thursday, May 17.
Throughout the sixth run of the Oliver Queen series, though, this time around the self-appointed vigilante and his team were tormented by the villainous Ricardo Diaz.
As the final episode draws close, however, it is likely that the events will culminate in an epic showdown with Oliver and Ricardo confronting each other, for once and for all.
While the anticipation surrounding the face-off is obviously on a rise, there's a growing speculation that with the finale, the show might bid farewell to one of it's OG characters - police officer-turned-mayor, Quentin Larry Lance.
Speaking with TV Line, most recently, actor Paul Blackthorne (who brings the cop character to life in TV's Arrowverse) touched upon the topic of the exit. And if his words are any indication, it is going to be interesting and quite memorable.
“It’s a beautiful exit, actually,” Blackthorne told the website adding, “A very nice exit, as exits go!”
Rumors about him quitting Arrow after season 6 have been rife for the longest time and the chatter was recently renewed when the actor was cast in NBC's "The InBetween".
In the new cop series, Blackthorne will be joining Australian actress Harriet Dyer (lead character of 'Cassie Bishop'), Anne-Marie Johnson, Cindy Luna and Chad James Buchanan.
Here's a little sneak-peek, in the form of the official synopsis:
“Cassie Bishop was born with a gift, though she may call it a curse. She can see and communicate with the dead, helping them with their unresolved problems … whether she likes it or not. When her longtime friend Det. Tom Hackett and his new partner, former FBI Agent Damien Asante, need help solving a darkly puzzling murder, Cassie agrees to use her abilities. Despite her reluctance, she may have found a way to keep her demons at bay, all while solving some of the city’s most challenging cases."
